Delving Downhole: What the Reservoir Reveals About Carbon Storage
What does the reservoir reveal about carbon storage? Learn from Science Rob how sound waves travel through rock and the impact on carbon storage.

Learn from Science Rob how we can test rock properties downhole in a well. By experimenting with how acoustic waves travel through simple everyday items, Rob reveals how this relates to rock and the mechanical properties that are essential for reliable carbon storage.

This and other subsurface insights plays a crucial role in evaluating carbon storage sites for appraisal. Learn more about carbon storage evaluation measurements and how they are an early, critical step in any carbon sequestration project.
